Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. Today I am looking at Event Writing.
Have you ever noticed how soon movies come out regarding an event that just occurred? I have. And it has occurred to me that it is probably true of writing as well.
For instance, writing a novel that takes place during the COVID-19 pandemic would be an example of event writing. The novel could be centered on the patient, the doctor, government, the race for a cure, and more.
Such a book, assuming it was well written, might have bestseller promise. The thing is that there is already a promotion campaign of sorts going on. It is called news.
For clarity, I have never written a book based on a current event. On the other hand, current events have inspired me to write books occurring in a different era but perhaps including the event or similar event in that book. It is not that hard to find comparisons in this era to past eras.
But I would argue that just because the topic is current and maybe ‘hot’ it doesn’t mean that you just throw something together. It might sell, but once people discover it is not a well written book the sales might fade or even stop. You always want to put your best efforts into your books.
